      How to Improve Professional Writing Skills: The Nine Most
      important Grammar and Editing Tips

Dr. Antonia Johnson from Clear Talk Mastery will present a 1.5-hour 
workshop on "How to Improve Pressional Writing Skills: The Nine Most 
Important Grammar and Editing Tips" on Friday, March 11, 2011, 
11:30am-1:00pm, at FL2-1001.

Of all the hundreds of things to do to improve writing, which are the 
most important for a person with English as a second language?  The 
workshop will tell the answer. Dr. Antonia Johnson will describe the six 
naked grammar rules.  Violate any one of these rules, and the mistake

and all writers. Lastly, she will reveal the simple secrets for optimal 
proofreading: what you should look for and how to find mistakes. This 
view of critical grammar rules and editing tips comes from expert 
opinion; Dr. Johnson's experience and interviews with 500 technical or 
scientific ESL individuals from 57 countries and 58 first languages (and 
their bosses and colleagues); and recent interviews with NCAR/UCAR
